21 Stunning Photos of Isolated Tribes From All Around The Globe

"Homage to Humanity" is photographer Jimmy Nelson's most recent published project and it is his second major work. Nelson tackled the challenge of visiting over 30 different indigenous cultures that span five different continents.

In Nelson's first book, "Before They Pass Away", he compiled a collection of pictures of 30+ vanishing tribes from all around the planet.

This project has been described as very similar, but this time the photographer expanded and added travel journals, maps, local information, and personal interviews.

He shifted his focus from the objects he captures to the actual journey itself. In most of his work, Nelson explores the idea of reconnecting to our roots and humanity.

Nelson believes that indigenous people play an vital role in how we perceive of ourselves as human beings. They are connected to a deeper meaning we have lost in this modern day and age.

This why Nelson is inviting everybody to join the global discussion on cultural identity.

Nelson will also be releasing a movie featuring 1500 photos, "all stitched together into one amazing journey across the cradle of human culture."
